Nueva imagen de la Tierra vista desde la Luna

Una nave espacial de China que se encuentra orbitando la Luna captó una nueva foto el 10 de Octubre de 2018. La imagen muestra cómo luce la Tierra desde una curiosa perspectiva en la que también se aprecia parte del lado oculto de la Luna. Debido a que nuestro satélite natural tiene una rotación sincronizada con su traslación, siempre vemos el mismo lado o cara de la Luna desde nuestro planeta.

Luego de analizar la hora exacta en que se captó la imagen, se estima que la parte visible de la Tierra en la foto pudiera mostrar partes de Africa y Australia, aunque también se percibe partes de océanos y una extensa nubosidad.

La imagen fue captada por "Longjiang-2", una nave que orbita la Luna para estudiar las emisiones de radio naturales que provienen de estrellas y galaxias. Cada vez que la nave pasa detrás de la Luna, esta puede realizar estudios sin ser afectada por las interferencias de radio y otras comunicaciones emitidas desde la Tierra.

Cabe destacar que radioaficionados de diversas partes del planeta colaboraron para que la nave lograra captar la espectacular imagen. Luego de enviar comandos a la nave desde China y Alemania, radioaficionados de Francia, Norte América, Letonia y Alemania apuntaron enormes antenas direccionales hacia la Luna para recibir la imagen.

La pequeña nave Longjiang-2 había sido lanzada desde China el 20 de Mayo de 2018.

La Sociedad de Astronomía del Caribe (SAC) invita a la Noche Internacional de Observación de la Luna, a realizarse este Sábado 20 de Octubre desde las 7:00 p.m. en los predios del Castillo San Felipe Del Morro, libre de costo.
